Dingle is situated on the Dingle peninsula on Kerry’s western coast in the south of Ireland. We can offer you a choice of self catering holiday homes in Dingle from the Dingle Harbour Cottages which over look the harbour to the Dingle Courtyard Cottages which are a short stroll from the heart of this bustling little town.
Over looked by Irelands highest mountain pass, the Conor Pass, this colourful fishing port and marina is the peninsula’s main town. It is full of pubs that regularly host traditional music sessions and a wide variety of excellent restaurants, many of which serve fresh caught seafood. The town also has a night club, cinema, a wide variety of traditional craft shops, a weekly Farm & Craft Market in the centre specialising in local seafood and produce and an aquarium, Dingle Ocean World.
In Dingle there is a wide variety of water sports on offer ranging from surfing at the West Coast Surf School to ISA approved courses in sailing, power boating and kayaking at Dingle Sailing Centre, fishing with Dingle Bay Sea Angling Charters and scuba diving with Dive Dingle which caters for all levels of ability and provides all necessary equipment.
Boat trips and sea safaris are available from Dingle Marina taking visitors to see Dingle’s most famous inhabitant Fungie the Dolphin, out to the stunning Blasket Islands or simply around the bay. Other activities include mountaineering, rock climbing, horse riding and canoeing, all available from Irish Adventures and abseiling, zip wire, a power fan and climbing wall at Play At Height Activities.
From the Conor Pass to Mount Brandon, the Dingle Peninsula has some really breathtaking scenery and there is a wide choice of marked walking and cycling trails of varying difficulty and length (bicycle hire is available in the town). The coastline is dotted with a variety of quaint villages and seaside towns such as Ventry, Dunquin and Ballyferriter with the beautiful sandy beaches of Ventry and Inch less than 10Km from Dingle itself.
Dingle or An Daingean is part of the Kerry Gaeltacht area (Irish speaking area) where the language is still in everyday use.
Our self catering holiday homes in Dingle are an excellent base for a self catering holiday if you are planning to explore Co. Kerry, as they are within easy reach of the ‘Ring of Kerry’, and the towns of Killorglin, Tralee and Killarney.
